One of the world’s largest instant communication platforms, imo has introduced a new phone number verification system to protect user information when users switch mobile phone numbers.

This enhanced protection level will bring a sense of relief to Bangladeshi users, who are increasingly concerned over the security issue of their personal information when they change mobile phone numbers, said a press release.

When a phone number has not been used for one to two years, telecom operators will recycle the number and reassign it to a new user.

Earlier, when a new user sets up an imo account with a recycled number, the new user would be able to access the previous user’s data as the accounts are synchronized.
